Growing Crystals

For Christmas Grandma Susie gave me a cool crystal making kit. The instructions are VERY long so I needed some help from Daddy to make them. Today I took a nap so I was allowed to stay up late after Emmerson went to bed. All I wanted to do was start my crystals.

I was a big goofy while I was waiting for Daddy to boil some water.


We mixed some crystal powder in boiling water until it dissolved and then poured it into a plastic container over a rock to help it grow.


The directions called for a rock the size of the container but not more than 3/4 of an inch high! We don’t have rocks like that in Florida. Thank goodness Mommy remember that we had a bucket of rocks from Lake Erie from last summer! She found the perfect rock for me to use.


We had to wait for the water to cool down before we added that last part of the mixture.


I hope my crystals grow quickly. I am super excited to see how big they grow… the box makes them look HUGE!


While I waited for the water to cool down I got to watch Twister on Blu-ray. I LOVE Twister and kept telling Mommy each part before it happened. We watched up until the flying cow and then I was tuckered and ready fro bed. What a fun day I had! 🙂
